Worried about pregnancy!!

Patient

Q: I had unprotected sex with a guy, but he pulled about before ejeculating though i know this isnt a really safe method. I am on the pill, but i continued taking it after 3 weeks, for an extra week to avoid my period. Could this mean i could be pregnant? i cant take a pregnancy test easily as i dont want to tell my mom...

Doctor

A:   I know your concern about pregnancy; in my opinion it would be unlikely for you to become pregnant after reading your narration.
However you should know that there are no 100% effective contraceptive methods and even if you are taking pills, there is a small chance of becoming pregnant. Like I said before, the chances of pregnancy in your case are minimal but I would suggest you to use barrier methods such as condoms not only to avoid pregnancy but also probable STD’s. I wish you the best.
